Abstract: Background and Aims: Some evidence has been reported the deterioration of the cardiovascularsystem during space storms. There is evidence indicating that geomagnetic storms are associated with decreased heart rate variability; elevated blood pressure, blood coagulation and platelent aggregation, increased blood viscosity, and decelerated blood flow. It is plausible that the heliophysical conditions during and after hospital admission may affect the risk of coronary events in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) during one-year period. Methods: We analyzed the data of 1,400 ACS patients who were admitted to the Hospital of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, and who survived for more than 4 days. We evaluated the associations between geomagnetic storms (GS), solar proton events (SPE), and solar flares (SF) that occurred 0-3 days before and after hospital admission and the risk of cardiovascular death (CAD), non-fatal ACS, and CABG during a period of one year; the evaluation was based on the multivariate logistic model, controlling for clinical data. Results: After adjustment for clinical variables, GS occurring in conjunction with SF on day before admission increased the risk of CAD by over 2.5 times (OR=2.55 95% CI 1.04-6.28). GS occurring two days after SPE on second day of admission increased the risk of CAD and CABG by over 2.5 times (respectively, OR=2.86 95% CI 1.05-7.79 and OR=3.77 95% CI 1.41-10.1). The risk of CABG increased by over 2 times in patients admitted during the day of GS and one day after SPE. The risk of ACS was by over 1.63 times higher for patients admitted one day before or after solar flares (OR=1.63 95% CI 1.04-2.55); the effect of SF was higher in patients with the greatest risk. Conclusions: These findings suggest that the heliophysical conditions before and after hospital admission affect the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events during one-year period
